Postseasons have been disappointing for San Antonio Spurs fans lately ever since 2007 when the team won their last NBA championship. No one can say the Spurs didn't try to win since then, they just didn't have the pieces to put a championship caliber team together. Last year looked promising, but the chemistry the team seemed to build in a small amount of time proved to not be enough when the series against the Oklahoma City Thunder got into high pressure situations. Now with a full year with the same team (Nando De Colo being the sole new addition), the Spurs are looking now more than ever as the golden opportunity to be the last team standing in June as Manu Ginobili tweeted. In 2012 with the Spurs we won 81 games of 109 played (74.3%) in 220 days. This year I just want to win the last one in June! #gospursgo — Manu Ginobili (@manuginobili) January 1, 2013 With Ginobili beginning the year with injury and having trouble to get in a groove, this is great news for Spurs fans that he still has the passion for another run at a title. Manu is not the only player playing at a high level right now for the Spurs, but Tim Duncan is looking better than he has since the last time he dominated the postseason in 2003 and Tony Parker is still looking like the team general on the floor and is looking to get things done early in the game without waiting to grind it out to a close finish. The Spurs are on a mission this year with loads of depth in every position while being able to mix around with different lineups. it seems Ginobili is determined to get one ring for the pinky and one for the thumb for Tim Duncan.
